Kelsey & Matt Breneman and their new baby girl, Selah Grace are enjoying  the design of their first baby's nursery.  Their main goal in the design of their nursery was to have a room that felt comfortable, serene and calming.  The color palette of soft metallics, gray, white and blush pink seemed to be the perfect combination to accomplish this nursery design goal.  Soft touches like a sheepskin rug, white seersucker curtains, and a few vintage pieces were added to the mix to finish the look.  Advice from Selah Grace's parents concerning room design?  Shop stores like Target, TJ Maxx and Home Goods for beautiful accessories that will give you the designer look you want at reasonable prices.  The room design was by Kelsey and her mom, Shelley Krupa of The Cozy Perch, a small design company in Longview, Texas. The mobile wreath was also created by Shelley Krupa. It is available for custom order in her Etsy shop, SelahGraceDesigns.   The nursery is ready.  So glad to have you in the family, sweet Selah Grace!

    This nursery is darling! Looking at the photos, our soon to be nursery looks like the exact layout as yours and I was concerned fitting everything in the room that I need to, while trying to utilize as many existing pieces I already have. Would you mind to share the dimensions of your room? Did you place the changing table/ dresser on the wall in front of the door and does that block the flow of the room? I was literally thinking of doing the exact layout you did with your pieces, so this successful example is really helpful to see it in real life! Thank you for sharing.

    Hi, Vanessa! Thank you for your kind words about my granddaughter’s nursery! My daughter and Selah Grace are definitely enjoying it!

    The estimated dimensions of the room are 16×15. We DID place the changing table/dresser on the wall by the door and it doesn’t block the flow of traffic at all. Also, the glider we purchased is from Target and was a little smaller so it fit into the corner really well.

    We love the angles in the room and hope this helps!

    Hi, Tabitha! Thank you so much for your kind words about the nursery! Our little Selah Grace and her family are really enjoying it!

    We purchased the paint at Lowe’s and it is VALSPAR – 4003-1B “FILTERED SHADE”. Hope that helps!

    So stinking adorable! I love it all :) where is the xo tic tac toe picture from? Thank you!!

  22. 22

    Thank you, Kelsey! (Thats’s my daughter’s name too!?)

    We got the tic-tac-toe board at Ross, so the chances of finding it again are probably slim, but Hobby Lobby may have something similar. Maybe if you type in metal TicTacToe board decor art you may find something similar. Hope that helps!

    I have bought the same bed from IKEA haven’t put it together yet, for the mattress did you buy 2 or just one?

  28. 28

    Hi, Taylorann!

    We actually bought the mattress from Target rather than from IKEA. We wanted to be sure we were getting a better quality one.

    Hope that helps!

    Such a gorgeous nursery!! Where did you all get the cubicle book shelf? I love how high it is and the number of cubes.

  30. 30

    Hi, Nicole! Thank you so much for your sweet words about the nursery! We are enjoying it!

    My daughter purchased the cubicles in the closet at target, as well as the baskets. I hope that helps!

    I love the gold dots! I’m thinking about doing something similar in my nursery, and was wondering about how many dots you used?

    Good Morning! I am thinking about that same chair for my daughters nursery and hesitant to order online from Target without sitting in it. However, there is a sale going on right now and I’d like the extra savings. Wondering what your review is on the chair for comfort and considering we will be doing a lot of rocking and nursing in that chair ;)

  36. 36

    Also, about the wall decals from Wallums – did you have to place them one by one on the wall or do they come like that? Last, did you get the gold metalic?

  37. 37

    Hi, Kaili!

    Yes, they come on a paper backing one by one and are placed however you want them. They lift off very nicely if you place it and change your mind to allow you to reposition them.

    Hope that helps!

    My daughter has loved the chair and it is very comfortable. It is a smaller chair though…just so you know. We bought the ottoman also…makes all the difference in the world. We would give it a good review. Other good thing about it is if you order it and just don’t like the fit, it can be returned.

  39. 39

    Hello, absolutely love the nursery! I was wondering how you ended up liking the crib from Ikea & if you would recommend it? Thank you!

  40. 40

    Hi, Morgan! My daughter AND Selah Grace love it! We have watched the crib go from being in the highest position to the lowest (Selah Grace at 6 months began to pull up and my daughter decided it was time to lower the mattress). It was easy to build and we have all been pleased with this crib! Hope that helps. ?

    Beautiful nursery! Can you tell me if you lightened the Filtered Shade paint color at all, or is that 100%? Thank you!

  44. 44

    Thank you, Megan! The paint isn’t lightened; used it right out of the paint can. :)

    Thanks for taking a peak inside the nursery!

    Hi, Debbie,

    When we purchased the dots, they come in a set with two different color choices (200 for each color). We chose all the same color and that gave us 400 gold dots. It was plenty. :-)

  47. 47

    Loving this nursery! As I was looking through nursery pictures on Pinterest I scrolled to it. It is just lovely. Found out today I am expecting a girl and hoping to use some ideas from your nursery to design one for my little girl. Thank you for answering everyone’s questions in the thread above….that is very sweet and very helpful to expectant parents trying to make nursery design decisions. ?

    Hi, Kayla! Thanks so much for your kind words! Congrats on your pregnancy and the joy of expecting a sweet baby girl. I wish you the best and should you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

    Hello, I adore the nursery! It is absolutely adorable! I’m doing a similar color scheme for my daughters room and I am trying to find wall decor and I love the octagon gold and rose hook hanger you used and the S that is hung on the wall. Do you remember where you found those??

  50. 50

    Hi, Jessica!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We have really enjoyed the nursery and my daughter and grandbaby spend a lot of time in this room. :-)

    We found the octagonal wall decor at TJ Maxx/Home Goods/Marshalls. I have seen them at all three places, so hopefully you will have some luck finding them or something similar. If you should be interested in the mobile, it was in my Etsy shop at SelahGraceDesigns.com. Thanks again for visiting and for your interest in our nursery. Appreciate it!

    Hi there!
    I love the gold confetti wall decals/dots. I am looking at wallums right now with hope to buy some. Did you opt for the 60 count or the 400 count? How much space in the nursery would you estimate they take up? Thanks so much, from an American living in Italy trying to make my dream nursery happen! :)

  52. 52

    Hi, Andrea! Greetings from Texas!

    I used the 400 (ordered the metallic gold for my first and second choice to get 400. We had leftovers but were good with that in case we ever painted the room, etc.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi there. I love this nursery! I know it has been awhile but do you know where the curtains where purchased? I am struggling with finding curtains and I am going for a similar look to this nursery.

  57. 57

    Hi, Sam! Thank you for your kind words!

    We purchased the curtains at Home Goods. They are a white seersucker curtain.


  58. 58

    Hi! Is the paint color like a light grey? I am trying to see if the gold dots will look okay on our grey walls or if I need to do an accent wall!

  59. 59

    Hi, Nicole! Yes, the walls are a light gray. Here is the exact color we used…

    4003-1B “Filtered Shade” by Valspar from Lowe’s.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello! The work you did in your granddaughter’s nursery is absolutely beautiful – thank you for sharing the photos and thank you for answering all of the questions about where you found various pieces, so helpful! I was wondering where you got the dresser? I was so happy to see the gray crib/white dresser combo in this nursery, I had been toying around with the idea and this solidified it for me!

  61. 61

    Hi, Rebecca! Thanks for your kind words about my grandbaby’s nursery! We got the drawer at IKEA and they still have it! Hope this helps!
